2024 PGA Championship odds, predictions: Favorites and picks from the field

The second major of the PGA Tour season is finally here, as the PGA Championship takes place this week.

The best golfers in the world will tee off Thursday at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky. The Jack Nicklaus-designed course is a par-71 track measuring 7,542 yards with Bentgrass greens.

Brooks Koepka is the defending champion, while Scottie Scheffler and Viktor Hovland finished tied for second last year.


As for betting on the tournament, we've got you covered with everything you need, from the odds to best bets.

Let's dive into the action.


Scheffler is a massive favorite, currently sitting at +400 to win it all. He's been on a dominant run as of late, winning four tournaments since March, including the Masters. He finally welcomed the birth of his child and is a full go this week.

Rory McIlroy won the PGA Championship the last time it was at Valhalla, shooting 16-under to beat Phil Mickelson by a stroke in 2014. 

Beyond Scheffler, McIlroy (+700) and Xander Schauffele (+1200) hold the second- and third-best odds, respectively. McIlroy's odds shortened from +1200 following his win at the Wells Fargo Championship over the weekend. 

What about Tiger Woods?

Tiger Woods won the event at Valhalla in 2000, shooting 18-under to win in a playoff. Woods is back this year, as he was included in the full field list for the event.

Despite Woods' past success at Valhalla, he is still a long shot to win the tournament, as he currently sits at +25000 to win it all, which is even longer odds than he had to win the Masters in April.

"I still feel that I can win golf tournaments ... I just need to do it for all four days," Woods said on Tuesday.

You can't talk about Tiger without bringing up Phil Mickelson, who won the 2021 PGA Championship. The lefty currently sits at +30000 to win this event.

Now that we teed off with the basics, let's approach the top favorites and my early pick to win the tournament.

There's just something thrilling about holding a lottery ticket deep into Sunday. It also presents you with multiple hedging opportunities if you want to eliminate some of your risks.

A lot of my bets are based on course history and form, so you'll soon get my full list of a couple of guys worth sprinkling pizza money on. A lot of my bets this week are based on course history and form, so here are a couple of guys worth sprinkling pizza money on:
